Spring is on it’s way. There is a warmth in the sun and, despite only 10 dry days all winter it feels like we are turning a corner. Richard has spent the early part of the week raking up leaves and assessing how badly damaged the trees are and unblocking drains. It is always exciting waking the site up after the winter and gearing up for the season.
I have been inspired to get out more than usual whilst reading The Salt Path. One of those books that just grips you. An inspiring account of a couples fight with life, age, and taking on the South West Coastal Path. Whether it is because we know the area or because they are just normal people fighting to stay a float, it is a brilliant read. So much so I will be getting more copies for you to borrow from our ever growing book corner.
Puzzles will also be featuring at Little Winnick this season, after our addiction took hold on a wet February half term. My parents came to visit and Storm Denis struck, and refused to budge so we were all stuck indoors with tired and teasy children. As luck would have it my parents brought my Gran’s old table I have inherited, an ideal puzzle table and so rekindled our love of puzzling. We will have a puzzle table in the dish washing area with a puzzle on the go which you can help out with and we would love you to bring your completed puzzles to share and swap with others.
In between the storms of half term we did manage to get out and about and the girls and Richard finally performed their panto with Polgooth Players. It was brilliant and so lovely to be part of such an fantastic community group.
Looking to the season ahead, I am pretty excited. We will be launching The Campfire Club in our beautiful meadow throughout the summer, we have some pretty exciting news I hope to share with you in April about the shop and what I will be allowed to sell 😊, and a new recycling area for all your beach bits and bobs that you don’t want to take home with you.
